Wise Aging Group (this program is full)

On Tuesdays starting February 20 – March 19 from 10:30-11:45 at the Senior Center, join Dinah Gilburd, LICSW, for this facilitated peer group based on the book Wise Aging: Living with Joy, Resiliency and Spirit. The group content and format offers a path, designed to support “communities of learners” who want to explore the aging process with questions, insights, and longings. Because there is no set of instructions for getting older, this nonsectarian program is an opportunity to discover resources that promote wisdom. The book draws from spiritual practices with multi faith traditions, poets and authors. The content includes the practice of mindfulness, meditation, listening and journaling. Along with the practices, the group interactions are an opportunity for participants to gain insights in a small group setting. As participants navigate this stage of life, there is the opportunity to arrive at new understandings about themselves, which can be transformational for many. Members will be asked to make a 5 week commitment as in order to build group cohesiveness, confidentiality and trust, full attendance is important. Each participant will receive a call from Ms. Gilburd, before the group, as a introduction, and to respond to any questions. Ms. Gilburd is a Clinical Social Worker with over 25 years of experience as a therapist, supervisor, conference speaker and workshop leader in a variety of settings supporting a variety of populations. A life long meditator, she worked with the Benson Henry Mind Body Institute of Medicine and implemented The Stress Reduction and Resiliency Training Program for clients and staff. She was fortunate to be trained as a group leader by Dr. Thal, the co-author of the group’s book, whose passion for “aging wisely” has enabled her to facilitate numerous groups.

Participants will be provided with the book by the Senior Center. Space is limited, so please register at 617-730-2770.
